Restraining Order Dismissed at Trial

Our office recently represented a client in a final restraining order hearing based on allegations brought against him by his ex-wife, the plaintiff, in a temporary restraining order. The two had been divorced for a number of years but still interacted because they had three shared children together from the previous marriage. The ex-wife had alleged that our client had harassed her through text messages and then assaulted her during a child drop off meeting.

At trial, our attorneys cross examined the plaintiff and pulled out inconsistencies and misrepresentations in her testimony of the alleged events. Moreover, in support of our client’s defense, we presented evidence to support his innocence and future challenge the plaintiff’s testimony. After a two day trial, the judge ruled that the facts did not warrant a final restraining order to be put in place and she dismissed the temporary restraining order previously set against our client. The court’s finding was directly supported by the fact they we had successfully challenged the plaintiff’s credibility and the judge did not believe her testimony. If you or a loved one has been charged with a restraining order, then contact our office today at (201) 793-8018 for a free consultation to learn more about how we may be able to help you.
